If you suffer from constant cold like symptoms or other allergy type symptoms, the culprit may be your indoor air quality.  This is because there can be a high allergen count in your air.  These allergens are not just from pets or pollen, often times we find other contaminants from sources like hidden mold or chemicals from common household cleaners.  We have also found there to be contaminants in indoor air from a combination of nearby construction projects and ventilation systems in your home that are not functioning properly or have air filters that haven’t been changed when they should have been.

An indoor air quality test from Air Quality Consultants Inc will detect the levels of allergens in your air, and could explain what is causing your suffering.

Since the majority of people spend the majority of their time indoors, it is crucial to have clean air in your home.  Concentrations of indoor pollutants can sometimes exceed those outdoors.  If the air in your workplace, your childs school, or your home contains contaminants, it can cause a multitude of healt problems and put you at risk.

Detecting All Allergens In Your Home

Many of the allergens you see listed below are well known, but some are not. We can help you learn more about these allergens and how we can help eliminate them from your air.

Our Process For Air Quality Testing

You are not only at risk from pollutants and contaminants from the outside, many times the source of irritants in your indoor air may be coming from right inside your home or office.  Many allergens that are found in the air are smaller than bacteria, and home test kits are not reliable at showing you all of them.  Our professional air testing equipment will detect even the smallest particles in your air, and identify if they are possible causes of your ongoing symptoms.

If your home does have allergens smaller than bacteria, they can enter your blood stream via your lungs and cause serious health issues.

Contact us today for your air quality testing (that exceeds anything an over the counter DIY air test kit can provide.  We will schedule you an appointment, show up on time, and perform our testing which includes a thorough inspection of home or office.  We will use professional equipment to test your air and take multiple measurements for different rooms in your house.
